Tips on Choosing Boardroom Tables
There are a number of areas that need to be included in the design of any meeting or Boardroom Table. You need to have some type and styles of chairs, as well as a table. Boardroom tables come in a number of different shapes and sizes to meet the different needs of the companies that use them.
Further, Boardroom Tables can be manufactured from different solid timbers in Australia.
These are generally;
- Hard Maple (Blonde Timber)
- Blackwood (Brown Timber) Can be stained to look like Rosewood
- Oak (Light Brown Timber)
- Jarrah (Red Timber)
- Mahogany (Reddish Brown)
- Walnut (Olive / Black)
Discuss further options with your cabinet maker.
First step you will want to figure out what size of table you need, which will require you to determine just how many people or your employees you need to be able to fit around the table. This in some part will limit your options and constrain your choices. You also need to measure the room in length and width to determine the size of table that will comfortably fit in the room while creating enough space for chairs to be pulled in & out comfortably. Between these two numbers you should be able to get a better concept of what types of boardroom tables would be best and timber choices.
If you have a small office and don't need to have a large table, round boardroom tables are best option since everyone can see everyone else intimately. However, square tables and octagon tables are also options. Those who have a more rectangular room or who need to be able to fit more people at the table should consider oval or rectangular. Those who frequently break up into small groups might want to have a number of smaller tables, perhaps ones that can be pushed together to make a bigger table for when everyone needs to meet together.
Once you have determined the size and shape of table and timber choice you need for your boardroom table, you will need to contact the cabinet maker. Try to choose something made out of materials that will complement the rest of the decor in the room. Keep in mind the activities that will need to be carried out in the room as well so that you make sure to leave enough room and choose suitable furniture.
